Schema iPad Application

2012

Schema is an iPad app intended to help students balance their academic and social lives. This app is a research project with the purpose of determining how game design techniques and interaction design can be used to encourage students to better manage their time. Interviews and personas have served as guides to help design a time management tool that is based on the existing time management techniques of its users. The interface and features of the application take into account user needs and goals but they also incorporate game design elements, such as sociability and status, in order to encourage students to partake in a desired behaviour. In all cases, the desired behaviour is for students to be able to easily recognize how they are spending their time and to easily recognize where they need to make adjustments.
